Princess Charlotte's Christening Will Be at the Same Church Where Princess Diana Was Baptized

Sunday, July 5, will be a big day for Princess Charlotte!

The daughter of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge will be christened at St Mary Magdalene Church at the Queen's Sandringham estate, Kensington Palace announced Friday. The location obviously has sentimental value, given that the Queen's estate in Norfolk is also where the late Princess Diana, Charlotte's grandmother, was baptized in 1961.

Their ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who also baptized Prince George in October 2013.

"It will be an extraordinary honor and privilege to help welcome the princess into the family of the church," Welby said in a statement to the BBC.

The royal couple have yet to announce Princess Charlotte's godparents. Prince George's godparents are Zara Tindall, Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Earl Grosvenor, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel and William van Cutsem -- which leaves open the possibility for Prince Harry and Kate's younger sister, Pippa Middleton, to be chosen as godparents to the newest addition to the royal family.

Charlotte, who was born on May 2, will be two months old at the time of her baptism.
